It’s officially here!!! “The Secret to Success” THE AUDIOBOOK! No actors, just me sharing my story with you.

    Mr. Thomas,

    my name is Kyree Oliver and I sincerely hope that you get a chance to read
    this, I have been praying that something causes you to read this message among
    the hundreds of emails and letters that you must get daily. You are such a
    humongous inspiration to me and your story and what you do has inspired me to
    create my own website and pursue public speaking myself. My website explains my
    whole story and my “Why” that you talk about in your videos, but I will give
    you a quick overview right here.

    I said, my Name is Kyree Oliver. I live in Brentwood, California and I am
    nineteen years old. Out of high school I received a full-ride football
    scholarship to the University of Idaho, where I attended last year. While
    there, I went through things that changed the way I view the people around me,
    and ultimately the way that I view the world. I went through months of physical
    and mental abuse by teammates of mine, ones that were supposed to be my
    “brothers”, my “boys”, who were supposed to be there for me no matter what.
    This went on for about 5 months and made me shut down as a person. I did not
    talk to anybody, did not share what happened to anybody, and really gave no
    indication that anything was going on at all. I did not trust anybody because
    in my mind, if the people that you are supposed to be closest with could beat
    you down mentally and physically to the point where you just want to give up on
    everything, then what are average people in this world capable of?

    after a lot of prayer, I decided to come back home in January of this year and
    restart. For the first few months, I was extremely withdrawn; not talking about
    anything that happened to anybody (not even my brother or parents) and sort of
    going through the motions of everyday life, playing Junior College football,
    going to school, working, etc. One day, for some reason, I decided to share my
    experiences with my trainer whom I had been a client of for 3 years and whom
    has developed into a person that I can truly trust above almost anybody else.
    He encouraged me to use what happened to me and turn it into a positive thing;
    to create a website telling my WHOLE story, being as transparent and honest as
    possible. This was tough because I was hesitant to even share with him what I went
    through and now he was suggesting that I put it out there for the WORLD to see.

    ended up creating
    first, to get my story out there and to show people that, when they feel
    defeated have nobody they feel like they can turn to about their problems, that
    they DO have somebody who can relate and can help them through that dark place
    and eventually turn it into a positive. It started out as just that, but after
    hearing the power in your way of speaking and the way that you present yourself
    and the passion that you put into what you do, I realized that I wanted to make
    this more than a sympathy site. I wanted to IMPROVE THE VALUE OF OTHER PEOPLE’S

    have realized that I am a part of a broken generation; a generation that really
    has no spokesperson their age to tell them that this generation does not have
    to adopt the same bad habits and bad tendencies of those before us; that WE can
    decide to make a change in our lives to make sure that our children do not grow
    up having to run the streets, that our children do not have to drop out of high
    school and wait till they are older to figure out that that is not the way. We
    do not have an Eric Thomas, a Les Brown, a Dr. King of this generation… not
    yet. My generation, for the most part, is a generation that does not want to
    hear about how to better themselves from the generation before us, because my
    generation blames to generation before us for SO MANY of our problems. The
    truth is that we do have the power to change the way that we think and
    ultimately change the course of the world, we just need enough people like you
    and myself who want to see that change come to pass.

    I sincerely hope that somebody passes this message to you and that you get a
    chance to read it. I would love to be able to speak with you in any way, shape
    or form to hear what you have to say firsthand, whether it is in person, over
    the phone, over a video call on the computer, etc. You truly are one of my
    idols and I would gladly drop everything and buy a plane ticket to anywhere if
    it means that I get to sit down and talk with you for even an hour.

    Respectfully Yours,
    Kyree Oliver
